Experience & Qualifications


I am from New Zealand and have a passion for snowboarding and travel. My partner and I have done ski seasons in Canada and Europe and France is our new home for 2016. I have grown up as the youngest of 6 children and since age 15 have been an aunty. I love playing with my nieces and nephews and taking them off my siblings hands whenever i can. In New Zealand I worked in a very fast paced corporate environment, i love it but when i travel i enjoy working in a different industry to meet new people and explore new opportunities. My passion for children has drawn me back to nannying and i am very excited to be back in Chamonix this winter season.

"Jeanette looked after our 3 children aged 5,7 & 11 in Chamonix last week. She is hard-working, knowledgeable, flexible, and an extremely pleasant person to be around. I would highly recommend her for any job involving children and help around the house.

"Jeanette has looked after our children during school holidays. She is fun and engaging with the children and enjoys playing games and being creative with them. She was always reliable and approachable, and listened to our instructions. She would also (when invited) come skiing with the family and was a great motivator! I would not hesitate to recommend her looking after other families children."

"Jeanette has a natural ability to care for, engage and play with our children. She is calm and manages to meet the needs of our 3 children 2yrs-8yrs with ease. She has spent time building rapport with each of them and has supported our family with day time care, school pick ups, meal times, evening bedtime and outings. She is honest and trustworthy and I would highly recommend her for childcare."
